Great information! Thanks for posting. Looking forward to seeing the side impact tests with the curtain air bags and without.
Yeah, tell me about it. That almost could have been a direct representation of ME in that video if I hadn't managed to straighten my wheel when I looked up at the last second to see huge SUV going fast in my rear view mirror. I actually would have been propelled into oncoming traffic at about...oh...20 mph or so, give or take a few physics lessons and whether I kept my foot on the brake or not....and had a ping-pong ball effect with two lanes of 40-45 mph traffic.Originally posted by zoltiz@Oct 27 2004, 06:21 AM
Labfish - look what color tC they used for the picture on the Crash Test resutls page. Next time buy a black one
the head injury criterion, lower the better.. i am not sure what units they are in. it means how the head was snapped around on the crash dummy.Originally posted by sitdowncomic@Oct 27 2004, 04:47 PM
I was looking at the results of the crash test, but I don't understand what these numbers mean?
Head Injury Criterion 283 438
Chest Deceleration (g's) 40 49
Femur Load l/r1 (lbs) 375/1009 666/273
Does anyone know? Whats with the 666??????????
Wow...Welcome to the real world.Originally posted by sitdowncomic@Oct 27 2004, 04:23 PM
Nice job sciontc_mich for spelling it all out.
I don't like those numbers one bit! I can't believe our government even allows car manufactures to start selling, when they haven't even crash tested them. Toyota should know that young kids are going to be buying these cars. And what do young kids do? Drive fast..... And they give us these numbers soooo disappointing.
ONLY **** (four stars) for the pasenger? This is 2005, and they cant get a ***** (five star) safety rating?
And whats with no side crash tests????? STUPID!!!!
done venting, thank you for your time...
